Seems the location is incorrect for this and I have submitted an amendment so I hope it gets updated. The Sanctuary (not temple) of Aphrodite is located in Kouklia just east of Pafos on the A6 and is a lovely archaeological site including the PaleoPafos museum. There are 2 reviews but really it's just one site with one entrance and... More

You need a couple of hours to do this properly. We had 1 hour, and ran round the site, spent half an hour in the museum. Museum is in a beautiful building and has a wonderful mosaic of Leda's bottom! and an interesting sarcophagus, and other bits and pieces. The sun was setting as we were there, very atmospheric.

Cheap entry to a very historical and important site. This UNESCO site is well-maintained with friendly guards and a good museum of artefacts. The video really sets the scene and it is lovely to be able to wander freely around the site.

Here you feel history! In the museum you find world-class pieces! The first statue of Aphrodite is one of best art pieces to understand how arts made an evolution over the centuries. 4,5 Euro to visit but you have also some Pokemon Go spots.

On this route there are many such places to take in to fill the day. The Temple of Aphrodite is a fascinating place to visit even though only little of the temple is there, but enough to whet the appetite and give the flavour. There is an interesting museum to visit. An hour or so is enough for me.

We visited this site on our way to Paphos airport. Allow 1-2 hours . We we're surprised by the quality of the artefacts in the museum and of the signage which for other sites on Cyprus have generally poor while here was really good.

It was a joy this place enjoyed the plethora of artifacts and ruins bestrewn across the site. The Museum was include in the price of 4.90 Euros. The high light of this trip was finding a very old coin.
